Lord’s Supper Bread Recipe

For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

Last night we tried a new Lord’s Supper bread recipe. For me, the store bought wafers sort of ruin the moment of reverence when you taste the Styrofoam flavored host. My son and I looked at several Passover unleavened bread recipes and concocted a simple one of our own. We received several positive comments after the service.

  • 7 Tablespoons Water
  • 7 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 7 Tablespoons Honey
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour

Mix all ingredients together and knead well on a flowered surface. Roll into 7 balls. With a rolling pin, flatten each ball into the thickness of thin pizza crust. Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 7-10 minutes. Cut into half inch squares.

I guess you weren’t trying to stick at all to the requirements in the Old Testament like with their sacrifices? Because one thing they were NOT to offer was honey. Not that I think that’s binding anymore, but since they probably used unleavened bread, and the Lord’s Supper resembles the peace offering from Leviticus most, it seems to make sense to follow along the same lines.

“ruin the moment of reverence when you taste the Styrofoam flavored host”

I found that funny, but this recipe looks good. I think the Styrofoam flavored host is a result of cost cutting.
